"This is one of our favorite quick dishes," writes Alyce Wyman of Pembina, North Dakota. "My husband and I used to winter in Florida and after a day of gold, it was always a cinch to prepare this satisfying meal with a tossed salad."
Years ago, my grandson requested a special dish to be included in his class cookbook, and this is the recipe I gave him. It was his favorite whenever he ate at our house, so he was delighted.
I often still serve it as a side dish - it's a good complement to any entree.

"Topped with favorite breakfast ingredients including eggs, sausage and hash browns, this colorful pizza makes a hearty centerpiece for a special breakfast or Sunday brunch," says Loretta Kenna of St. Elizabeth, Missouri.
My mother often made this recipe and probably grew up with it in the Appalachian area of Tennessee. She usually served it on Monday, making use of leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner. We used to eat this topped with brown gravy.
I found this fluffy pancake recipe among our old family favorites, and adapted it to make a small amount. It's quick and easy to prepare, but we still consider it a special treat. —Eugene Presley, Council, Virginia
"In an effort to eat healthier, I've been playing around with some recipes, including this hearty omelet," writes field editor Cathee Bethel of Lebanon, Oregon. The bountiful blend of tomatoes, kidney beans, cheese and onion makes it a satisfying centerpiece for breakfast, brunch or supper.
"I can't brag enough about this recipe," writes Renee Lloyd of Pearl, Mississippi. "It's elegant enough for a formal brunch, yet simple and nutritious. With different fruits and cereals, the variations are endless."
